Position: Executive Director
Company: Under the Spire Music Festival - Kensington, PEI, Canada
Lindsay Connolly (she/her) is the executive director of Under the Spire Music Festival and a PEI-born musician and arts administrator. After five years as a freelance grant-writer and arts administrator for organizations in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, Lindsay returned to the East Coast (best coast!) in 2021 to begin work with Under the Spire Music Festival, formerly known as Indian River Festival. Now entering its 28th season in 2023, this summer-long festival attracts thousands of music lovers annually to the acoustically perfect Historic St. Mary’s for some of the best in classical, traditional, folk, jazz and world music! Lindsay is grateful to work, play, and live in beautiful Kataganek Epekwitk, the traditional unceded territory of the L’nu and Mi’kmaq.
